Make The World Better Benefit w/Kurt Vile, The Districts & More at Union Transfer June 20

Connor Barwin’s Make The World Better Foundation, R5 Productions, and WXPN host a special fundraiser for the revitalization of Ralph Brooks Park in South Philly tonight. The big project will feature a state of the art basketball court, an urban farm, and a mural made by renowned artist, Steve “ESPO” Powers. The show features a stellar lineup that includes a headlining set from “constant hitmaker” Kurt Vile & his Violators. Vile will be joined by our most recent Philly Best Emerging Artist of the Year Poll Winners, The Districts, who have had a breakout year with their Fat Possum release and hefty touring schedule, which includes stints with Dr. Dog and White Denim. Rounding out the lineup will be Houston’s The Tontons. Union Transfer, 1026 Spring Garden St., 9pm, $25 - $300, All Ages - Bill McThrill

New Music Video: "Rocking Chair" - The Districts

The Districts just premiered a new music video for "Rocking Chair" over at NME. In it, they get a bit freaky in the woods, and you might learn a good lesson about playing with fire for a video shoot. It was produced by Dog Days Film. Enjoy!

All-ages Homecoming for The Districts at FUC May 15

2014 has been a huge breakout year for The Deli’s Philly Emerging Artist of 2013 winners, The Districts. From releasing their first label album with Fat Possum, to touring with Austin’s White Denim, and playing shows in the UK and beyond, they have made some major moves. Tonight’s all-ages show at First Unitarian Church will be a brief homecoming with old friends before they embark on a June tour with Dr. Dog, and get ready for big summer festivals like Lollapalooza, XPoNential Festival, and the Electric Picnic Festival in Ireland. The Districts will be joined this evening by their good pals Pine Barons, Nashvilles’s Clear Plastic Masks and Fly Golden Eagle.
